  1. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I believe they may be on a play-or-pay deal. Backing that up, Since the top 5 are giving up $100k to augment Mayim & Melissa's salary, that would mean if there was an episode that (for example) Kaley and Kunal were not in, that $200k would not be available. That would cause some problems with contracts.

    I really hope TBBT makes 15 seasons, just to piss off a lot of people. Merry Christmas!

    While we don't know if Amy (has never met or) has met Missy, I think she should be up there too. While Amy gets to pick MoH, brides usually consider fiance's sister(s).

    And that's exactly what Amy wants Sheldon and you to think.
  5. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Penny and Leonards' wedding WAS in keeping with their characters. Penny, the impulsive one says "Let's get married (in LV)". Leonard, the one who will do anything Penny says, agrees to. They go off. That was my opinion (even before reading Molaro's explanation, which for some reason, some people here doubt) because it makes sense. There is no conspiracy. On the other hand, Sheldon (and Amy) are anal-retentive looking to make sure EVERY detail is planned (whether it executes is another story). Please, I don't want to see a something like HIMYM taking a year for that wedding (while taking 2 days in HIMYM time).

    I believe otherwise. I think if Penny shot him with a gun, he'd make up some excuse for her and say "let's give it another chance".
  7. Season 10-11 Hiatus Thread

    My mechanic wanted $700 for the same thing (Saturn (GM)). And I bought the car from them and they said the AC was working (in December. We turned it on and it blew out cold air...BUT IT WAS DECEMBER). I told them no. I got the part online (refurb in the US) for $99 with a one year warranty and my mechanic put it in for $200 (Freon and Labor).

    Penny was a serial dater. She was not written for (tv) long-term dating. She was written to bounce from guy to guy due to low self-esteem. Leonard was the one to raise her self-esteem level. Consciously or sub-consciously, that's what attracted her to Leonard. He made her feel better about herself (most times).
  9. Chit Chat: Season 10

    But probably not the reason you think. First, Mayim is nominated in a different category than Kaley (supporting vs. lead). The playing field in Lead Actress for a Comedy is VERY tough most years. And the characters that the actresses are nominated for are sometimes more complicated/intricate/troubled/etc... . The supporting field is a little less competitive. Another reason is the combination of actress/character. Amy started out as a sad sack/loner/single person. The WRITERS gave her a personality and a boyfriend. (Sorry, she still is sort of a sad sack.) Penny's character, while having evolved, was not such a change as Amys'.

    That wasn't even a possibility. The show was renewed for two seasons. $100,000 from each of the 5 is small change to WB/CBS/Syndication money coming in. Plus, we only know the 5 offered to take a 100k cut to fund Melissa/Mayim. We don't know if they actually did or had to. TBTB could have raised M/M without the 5's money.

    But that makes you tie Penny's (self-)worth to a man. Penny is Penny because she's funny, pretty, street-wise and (mostly) can handle the geek-world even though she doesn't belong to it (or like it much).
  12. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    No one here can write the show. It'd be too Mary-Sue (or shipped or fan-boyish).
  13. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    Ratings are only declining because fewer people are watching (metered/network) television. It's all proportional. TBBT is still the number 1 rated comedy. The ENTIRE TV audience is dwindling. Why can't Penny be an amazing marksman? The gun went off accidentally and hit the cushion, it's not like she was aiming for the door and hit the cushion. And before anyone says anything about Penny handling the gun, maybe there was a defective safety switch, or she thought it was on. We don't know and it was irrelevant for the story - the stain on the cushion. It happens to the best marksman.

    What job? The project is done (as far as they're concerned) and he's off for the summer till he returns to go back to his chosen field. Amy is only supposed to be gone 3 months (summer time). No problem with deciding what coast to live on. Sheldon only questioned if Leonard's' question was appropriate not because it embarrassed him or Ramona, but because Sheldon thought Leonard was flirting with Ramona (in front of Penny) trying to find out if she was available.
